Jordon Robertson, DE from Bishop Dunne high school in Dallas, TX, committed via twitter Friday night becoming Kansas State's ninth commitment for the 2016 class, and the second commitment this week following Jimmy McKinney's (LB, Oologah, OK) commitment.

Robertson, 6'3" 245 lbs, is ranked as a three star by 247sports.com and a two star by rivals.com. ESPN.com doesn't have him ranked as of today. Also, according to Rivals, Robertson runs a 4.77 sec. 40 time, he benches 325 and squats 515. His offers include Iowa, Nevada, Southern Methodist, and future Kansas State opponent UTSA.

His hudl.com video is impressive. It does appear that most of his competition is smaller and at this point he relies mostly on his strength and superior size to over power opposing tackles. I was particularly impressed with a play at the 40 second mark where he diagnoses the counter play and stuffs the running back in the backfield.

Throughout the highlight you can see him excel as a three-technique defensive tackle, as well as when he lines up at the defensive end position. His unique mix of speed, and size will be an asset for the defensive line, as it will allow him to line up in multiple positions.

Overall, Robertson is the second defensive commitment for the 2016 class, and one that brings a ton of potential to Kansas State's defense. Hopefully he can add some finesse to his power moves, because if he does he could terrorize opposing offensive lines.
